Set on 1,500 acres, Villas of Grand Cypress offers two onsite restaurants, as well as a poolside snack bar. For a casual breakfast, lunch or dinner, our Forbes Travel Guide editors suggest heading to The Club. The eatery has a sports-bar-like feel, but it’s still a family-friendly option. Overlooking the fairways of the North and South courses, The Club turns out classic American food — create-your-own skillets and omelets, quarter-pound hot dogs, Reuben Panini, assorted Signature salads — and shows games on its seven HDTVs. The pool bar is another relaxed spot that serves sandwiches, chips and sodas between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
If you’re looking for an upscale dinner, head to NINE18, the newest addition to the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel. The dinner-only restaurant serves up tender, hand-cut steaks, chops, and fresh seafood. NINE18 also overlooks the golf course (thus, the name), a romantic backdrop to your filet mignon or twin lobster tails with lemon-chive butter sauce.
